When I type in [ math] sqrt{x} \[mat] as an example .(I know about not leaving spaces ) When I preview I get [tex]... my formula as I typed it in...[\math] I do not get a formula in mathematical notation 5. ## Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math] Originally Posted by TeslaCoil The point is : The tutorial says type in [tex]...... \[tex] but when I do I do not get the formular as you have - by changing [\math] to tex i see!

In particular it begins with $$and ends with$$. 6. ## Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math] Your post has a huge number of typos: using \ instead of /, having \ before [ instead of after, writing mat instead of math, etc. It is not surprising that with such number of typos something does not work. I suggest you copy-paste the code from the tutorial instead of re-typing it. If you still have an example in the tutorial that does not work, please post a link to that example. Plato showed the exact code to produce a LaTeX formula. 7. ## Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math] The point is : The tutorial says type in $$...... \[tex] but when I do I do not get the formular as you have - by changing [\math] to tex i see!

It was anther person who suggested the tutorial was wrong.. THE TUTORIAL CLEARLY SHOWS \ not / as I had to keep correcting my self - being used to using / as divide by. See the inserted images in my other answer In my original post there are NO typo math is math and \ is as the tutorial showed me i.e. not / I just wanted some help! I am not criticising any one except my self! 10. ## Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math] So! do I type in [ tex} ........[/tex ] or [math ] .......... [\math] or$ please 11. ## Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math] Originally Posted by TeslaCoil So! do I type in [ tex} ........[/tex ] or [math ] .......... [\math] or$$ please
In reply #2, I wrote$$x^2\sqrt{x}$$ gives $\displaystyle x^2\sqrt{x}$

You must use the TeX wrap
